It Gives Me Fever...

Such a long day and very little to show for it. My wife has been less than healthy for a while and about noonish, she began to run a fever of 104.2 and I took her to the emergency room. She has a pneumococcal pneumonia and ended up admitted into the critical unit. She is very weak and feverish. I... Sign in to see full entry.

You Don't Own Me

I saw where Leslie Gore died today at age 68 of lung cancer. I was just getting into the music scene myself when a very young Miss Gore began to hit the radio waves with such songs as “It’s My Party,” “Judy’s Turn To Cry,” “She’s a Fool,” “That’s the Way Boys Are” and “Maybe I Know.” I was ten and...

I Carry It In My Heart

My wife was quite uneasy last night. She has frequent periods of 'unease' so I decided to read her a love poem from e.e. cummings to help calm her a bit. This was a long time favorite of mine because it is the truth. i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart) i am never without it (anywhere... Sign in to see full entry.

Is It REALLY Necessary For It To Be 16 Below?

At 7 AM, I woke up to make sure our water hadn't froze shut (it hadn't) and looked at the local weather station to get the 'official' temp. -16. Who ordered this crap? Add to the joy of that, we had a prevailing northern wind that just made it all seem even worse. Besides the fact that nearly... Sign in to see full entry.

A Baseball Fan's Dream

Now I'm a lifelong fan of the Detroit Tigers, having listened to games on the radio since I was four or five (waaaay back in the mid to late 1950's!). I remember the years of having a great season only to end up second to the "M&M Boys" (dat's da Yankees for you non fans). I remember Al Kaline,... Sign in to see full entry.

Holy Snowflakes Batman!

I had a meeting to attend tomorrow about writing but they just called to tell me it would be postponed. Now I've been busy writing all day and while I had heard the weather forecasts, I hadn't looked outside. Hmmmmm... four inches of new snow since 3PM EST, a 15 to 20 mph wind which makes for...

My Tribute To A Hero of Mine

I am approaching the age of 62 and in my life, I've had exactly three heroes; my Father, Al Kaline, Detroit Tiger Hall of Famer, and Dale Earnhardt. We are coming up on the 14th anniversary of the death of Earnhardt and I'd like to pay my tribute to the man. I had met him twice, both times were just... Sign in to see full entry.

Baby It's Cold Outside!

My wife has settled down a bit and I am grateful for that. I took her in for blood work and she has a decent pneumonia setting in. They gave her a shot of Rocephen which is a very fast acting broad spectrum antibiotic, meaning it covers both gram negative and gram positive bacterias. She is catching...

My wife Judy has been quite sick lately to the point I thought she might be admitted to the hospital but they saw her tonight in the walk in clinic and dosed her up with three or four different meds. She is breathing better with less tossing and turning and for that, I am very grateful. It bothers... Sign in to see full entry.

Make Mine With Double Bacon!

Having a degree in Applied Biological Science, a fancy term for "I took a lot of biology classes," I had to laugh when I read this article. (The U.S. Government is poised to withdraw longstanding warnings about cholesterol. The words in the headline should begin with caps... but then again, this is... Sign in to see full entry.
